BPP or University of Law for LPC?Watch
I will graduate with an LLB from Durham this summer and am deciding whether to go to BPP or Uni of Law for my LPC. I don't have a TC yet, and my decision will hinge on this.
I am particularly interested in applying to American firms (i.e. Weil, Skadden, Latham etc). As far as I can see, the firms seem 50/50 on the LPC providers.
So does it matter which one I pick?
Really doesn't matter. They only have a preference for LPC providers as they have a preferential rate they pay for sponsored course places. If you are doing the LPC of your own accord, it doesn't matter where you do it as you are not on a sponsored course.
I wouldn't be rushing into the LPC without sponsorship, especially for the type of firm you are aiming for, and where the LPC might not be the best route in less than 9 months time.
Honestly, not that great. But there are plenty of resources available so I have been fine muddling through. I didn't want to apply for corporate/commercial firms and this appears to be where their knowledge of firms is. I know some people have great experiences so I might have been unlucky. They are happy to read through applications, check your CV etc so that has been helpful
Are you studying the LPC full time or part time and what is your timetable like? I'm considering the LPC in university of law for a september start so any information would be useful
I am also completing the LPC at ULaw. Do you know anyone currently doing the immigration elective. I have a question. Please let me know.
